"There are not a lot of teams out there giving away contracts. I’m satisfied with my deal even though it’s undervalued. I’m still going to go out and do my job."This brings the team's 2010-11 salary commitment up to $47,630,214 (for eight players) and probably eliminates whatever chance there was the Hawks would take a guard with the 24th pick. It also leaves Jamal Crawford, backed up* by Mo Evans, playing shooting guard for the Hawks should Joe Johnson leave.
*Presuming the new coach will not continue to play Evans out of position at the 3.
